Summer Thornton on decorating with color: a masterclass

If you weren’t familiar with designer Summer time Thornton, you can find a quote sprawled across a site in her new ebook, ‘Wonderland: Adventures in Decorating’, that would explain to you all you need to know about her style. It reads: ‘Beige is for inexperienced persons.’ Indeed, Thornton is a wizard when it arrives to decorating with coloration, and there is not a web page in the e book that isn’t really splashed with it. 

‘I do not consider there is this kind of a matter as much too a lot shade. I imagine color should really be integrated into your household in a way that makes you sense fantastic,’ Thornton tells us. ‘I am an all-or-almost nothing form of individual so I will not believe in dipping my toe into shade.  If I use coloration, I layer it up and pile it on. I do not feel in balancing it with neutrals.’
